Country Fried Steaks with Mushroom Gravy are cube steaks that are battered and fried then smothered in a mushroom gravy. Served with a side of mashed potatoes it is pure comfort food on a plate!
Recently I was admiring the blog of a friend, Grannyloohoo. Grumpy was sitting there with me on the couch admiring her peach pie on her new blog that she had posted. I went in to make a comment on her pie and Grumpy tells me, make sure you tell her it looks “scrumpdillyumptious!” Then he proceeded to tell me I needed to make something “scrumpdillyumptious” myself. I looked at him and said, “You’ve got to be kidding me!” I mean, the thoughts going through my head were, what is wrong with you? LOL. I’ve been cooking my behind off lately! So I said, just what is scrumpdillyumptious that I haven’t made lately? You see, he had to be very careful here…..if he wanted to continue eating in his future….at our home anyway! I think he got the hint because he said, he would like me to make a savory dish. LOLSo, I decided that since not so long ago he mentioned I hadn’t made contry fried steak in a long while, that I would do just that for dinner the first chance I had. I made a special stop at the grocery on my way home from work yesterday and bought some cube steak. Fortunately, that wasn’t sky rocketed in price and I was able to spend only $5 (on the meat only!) to fix his dinner. I serve this with homemade mashed potatoes (mashed with a little butter and sour cream). Here is how you can do it too:
